As we plot our escape from the city, we have had a recurring conversation with ourselves and our friends. That is, we like the city, but it is tough with kids, then justification for moving out of the city. Some of our friends response is, "We'd love to move home, but right now our jobs are here." It seems, NYC is hard to escape. It's hard to escape for several reasons: top jobs in finance, banking and law; a life of no cars and everything literally always open and right around the corner from you; friends in the city; and of course all the big buildings, bright lights and fast times. But, our entire time in the city has been marked by friends leaving. And when someone leaves, we all gather around, mourn their loss, and congratulate ourselves for making it just a bit longer.
We like to think of it as graduating from college. We had our time here, it was fun, we will always remember it, but now we are moving on to something new and different. But still, we sometimes find ourselves justifying again our reasons for leaving. Seems we are a little bit stuck in NYC.
